Into the Myst in Solihull

Thank you, to Karen Brooks of Lady Katherine Leveson C of E Primary, who spent two days (1 and 2) with us, during our recent visit to Solihull, and sent us these thoughts:

Thanks for an entertaining couple of days.  It was great to see children so motivated to write.  Both KS1 and KS2 pupils seem to be working well.  I was impressed to see Year 2 pupils giving both sides of an argument, as illustrated by your good friend, Mr Walker.

The embedded use of ICT really fired their imaginations and created many opportunities for further teaching.

It is always interesting to watch other people teach and to notice techniques they use to manage behaviour whilst inspiring creativity and risk taking.

I will certainly be adapting some of your tricks;

– I spotted more by being able to attend both the KS1 and KS2 sessions.

As teachers we often find ourselves too busy to learn, and remembering what fun learning can be is refreshing.  In the morning we learnt with children and I was not the only one who did not want to stop.

In the afternoon we learned alongside colleagues – another step up in my use of PowerPoint, and some useful, free software.  We may start sharing ideas using virtual post-its in staff meetings.

Wow! Hasn’t the internet got some great things to offer?  And they are free!  The twilight session had so many ideas.  I’ll be using that password to the LOCKED PAGE and for finding some of those websites.
